Crochet Pattern: Valiant Stripes Scarf

Valiant Stripes Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterI love crochet ripples. They are just so fun to make and wear. The Valiant Stripes Scarf uses a bold ripple pattern to make a statement scarf. It’s perfect for cold weather and it makes a great “game day” scarf in team colors.

Valiant Stripes Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterI love textures and in this scarf, I played around with something different to make a fun texture without bobbles, popcorns, or post stitches.
